Photographer's Note

Little interest in geysers of New Zealand. And they were so fascinating to me. Poor photographer :(.
So the pictures from Warsaw made yesterday. This is the view of the wing of Saski(Saxon) Palace.

The Saxon Palace had been preceded by a manor house belonging to Tobiasz Morsztyn. After 1661 his brother and heir Jan Andrzej Morsztyn had replaced the manor house with a baroque palace (Pałac Morsztynσw, "the Morsztyn Palace") with four towers.

In 1713 the Morsztyn Palace was purchased by the first of Poland's two Saxon kings, Augustus II (reigned in Poland 1697–1706 and 1709–33), who began enlarging it. In 1748 the palace's rebuilding was completed by his son, King Augustus III.

In the early 19th century, the Saxon Palace housed the Warsaw Lyceum in which Frιdιric Chopin's father Nicolas Chopin taught French, living with his family on the palace grounds.

After World War I, the Saxon Palace was the seat of the Polish General Staff. In 1925, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was established within the colonnade-topped arcade that joined the Palace's two symmetric wings.

In Workshops two other views of the colonnade.
